SGI and the Ohio Supercomputer Center announced the
launch of a new Itanium-based Linux cluter with 146 processors,
making this cluster one of the fastest in the world. This cluster
will allow Ohio researchers to study everything from
quark-antiquark attraction and radiation transfer in astrophysical
outflows to simulations of photosynthesis components and matter in
the early universe.The Itanium-based Silicon Graphics 750 system
with 292GB memory, 428GFLOPS peak performance for double-precision
computations and 856GFLOPS peak performance for single-precision
computations, follows the Pentium III XeonTM cluster that was
operative at OSC for the past 18 months. The old system will be
divided into smaller clusters and cascaded to faculty as part of
the Cluster Ohio Project grants awarded last month.
